Namibian archers will be taking part in the World National Archery in Schools Programs at the Calgary Alberta, Canada in July this year.

The 16 archers have already started with preparations as they have been taking part in every competition in and out of the country and will continue doing so, the secretary of NASP Karola Woortman has told The Villager. 

“These competitions are part of their preparations. We are optimistic that we will bring home medals because we are producing winners.  We trust and believe that once we are there we will do our best as a team. I trust in all the archers. They are the best. The motto of our team is ‘We believe in ourselves’,” she said. 

She added that the archers are already aware of the kind of competitors they might be competing against and have been trying hard to be the best of the best on their level. 

Woortman also said that finding sponsors is the biggest challenge they have been facing because flight tickets cost almost N$30 000 per person, saying that the group welcomes anyone who can get the tickets at a cheaper cost.
